Tillamook Cheesy Brunch Frittata
Every Sunday my family tries to get together to enjoy a leisurely late morning breakfast. I like breakfast and brunch foods that fill the house with mouthwatering scents while cooking. Frittata is a great brunch food because it’s easy to make, looks good, and you can customize it to fit the ingredients you’ve got around the kitchen.
Prep time: 15
Total time: 30
Yield (number of servings): 4
½ yellow onion
½ cup shredded Tillamook Medium Cheddar
Handful of grape tomatoes
Spinach, kale, or fresh basil, just enough for garnish
1 pinch of black pepper
1 pinch of salt
Note: You will need a frying pan that can be put into the oven
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Dice onion and place in pan over heat with olive oil. Then slice mushrooms and add to the pan. Sauté onion and mushrooms until onion is transparent. Remove onion and mushroom from pan and set aside.
Beat eggs together and set aside. Arrange thin slices of potato on the bottom of the pan and cook for a few minutes over medium heat. Once cooked, arrange the potatoes to cover the bottom of the pan (this will act like a pie crust when you serve the frittata). Cover with a layer of the mushroom and onion, and then pour beaten eggs evenly over the layer of mushrooms and onions. Cover the eggs with the grated cheese. Garnish with the tomatoes, parsley, basil, salt, and pepper. Bake in oven for 15 minutes. Best if sliced and served right away.
You can make this breakfast frittata using any seasonal vegetables or diced meats you’d like. You can also substitute any tasty Tillamook Cheese for the Medium Cheddar to mix things up!
What will you include in your frittata this weekend!?
